I was following the Sedo auction for Calculator.com when I got distracted just before the auction concluded and did not see it end. It looks like the domain name ended up selling for $250,899, as recorded by NameBio and reported by Sedo this morning on Twitter:
A 6-figure sale is the best way to end the work week🤗🤗🤗: Calculator(.)com sold for nearly $251K!

Calculator.com is a fantastic domain name with many uses. In my opinion, the most lucrative way to use Calculator.com, would be something related to the financial field rather than math or science. There seem to be a whole lot of searches related to various types of loan calculators (mortgage, refinancing, car loan, HELOC…etc), and I’ve heard those particular verticals can be good for lead generation and revenue generation. Since the auction just concluded, I doubt the deal closed yet, so the buyer is not publicly known.
Once the sale closes and Ron Jackson adds it to the DNJournal sales report, it should rank as the 26th largest publicly reported domain name sale of the year, behind the $255,200 sale of Casino.ro and ahead of the $249,980 sale of CrosswordPuzzles.com. It will be the 5th largest public domain name sale of the year at Sedo.
This auction was not part of Sedo’s monthly Great Domains auction event.
